There have been no serious under the hood change since Project Butter, but 4.4 is a pretty substantial update( a lot more than 4.3, comparable to 4.2). Only had about 12 hours of active use with my N5 but the myriad of small but nifty changes are quite enjoyable. Not sure why you insist on downplaying it.
The Hangout SMS integration(Google says more improvements are coming),the updated Email App with Gmail like interface and gestures(like swipe to delete), the new dialer & lockscreen playback controls are just a few things I really enjoys. I am sticking with the Google Experience launcher as Nova have not updated to support 4.4 features yet, but for a stock launcher it is actually pretty good.
Do wish they ditched the wireless charging circuit and put in a bigger battery, but for this price I can't really complain.Edited by sherlock - 11/6/13 at 7:51am
